Within the world of hardwood floor installation there are so many options. So it may seem overwhelming to you. Let me try to break it down for you. Traditional solid hardwood is 3/4″ thick and most engineered hardwoods are 3/8″ , 1/2″ or 5/8″ thick. You should select which type of hardwood too install based on your subfloor type. If your home is on a concrete slab we recommend a nice engineered hardwood. If you have a crawlspace you can choose either a solid or engineered hardwood. We would love to install either hardwood for you. Give us a Call Today and we will come out measure and provide you with a free quote same day. We service all areas of the Triangle to include Cary, Apex & Raleigh, NC. 


The current trend we are seeing for hardwood floors are wide plank up to 7 1/2″ oaks with white or grey washed colors. Mullican Mt Castle, Armstrong TimberBrushed, and Armstrong TimberCuts are all some of our favorite manufactures for Wide Plank Hardwood Floors.

Probably the hardest part of installing your hardwood floors is having to move all of your furniture. Although it is a task, we do ask that you move all of your furniture or anything that touches the floor prior to your installation or refinishing date. Doing this will allow us to jump right into the installation and/or refinishing thus finishing your job sooner. We understand you may not be able to move every single piece in the home so we will help with 1 or 2 particular pieces if needed. If you are installing prefinished hardwood flooring you do have the flexibility to move furniture around the install. Please keep in mind that moving of furniture may delay the installation completion date and additional cost may apply if installation is taking place on a second floor.


You may not know but particle board is not a suitable subfloor for solid hardwood floor installation. This is because particle board will not hold the nail and will eventually lead to a loose and faulty floor. If you request a solid floor we can remove the particle board and install another layer of plywood subfloor to ensure stability and structural integrity. Per NWFA specifications, there must be a minimum of 3/4″ subfloor total when the joist are 16″ on center before installing solid hardwood floors. Sound expensive? Yes, removing particle board and installing a new layer of plywood is an additional cost and can be pricey but is a must if your requirement is a solid hardwood. On the positive side, if having a solid hardwood floor is not necessary for your project we would happily install a floating LVP or engineered hardwood floor on top of the particle board. Potentially saving you thousands of dollars. If particle board is present in your home can still provide you with a hardwood install solution to make sure you achieve your dream floor.


If you prefer a site finished hardwood floor we offer a large selection of unfinished red oak, white oak, walnut, maple, brazilian cherry and Pine Hardwood flooring! Although a site finished floor is not as convenient as a prefinished wood floor it still has its benefits. Well for one, you don’t have to worry about a beveled edge collecting dust or dirt. This is because as we sand the floor we will eliminate any and all height difference between boards leaving your hardwoods nice and flat. Two, you the homeowner, can choose your wood stain color and the level of sheen. A site finished floor is truly a work of art and should only be attempted by a professional with professional equipment.
